The London Book Fair 
The London Book Fair is coming to town! Okay, this might not be as exciting for you as it is for me… and it does cost £25.00 to get in but I can’t wait! Let me know if you’re interested in going and we can go together! April 11-13th Earl’s Court , London.

World BOOK Night
World book night is on Friday night. What organisers believe will be the biggest single literary event in history is to raise the curtain on next month's World Book Night, itself billed as "the biggest book  give-away ever". On 4 March London's Trafalgar Square will be given over to a "glittering celebration of the written word", with 10,000 people expected to attend. Graham Norton will be hosting the event, with readings from Margaret Atwood and Philip Pullman (among others). Read more HERE  Tickets to the event are free, but limited.
